Table of Contents

New Announcer VO added

[Note: At the moment this new announcer VO is only playing on Butcher's Bridge matchmade games and will NOT PLAY if you do a custom game on Butcher's Bridge.]
A new "Bilgewater-y" announcer voiceover has been added in today's PBE patch!

This new VO currently only plays on Butcher's Bridge BUT does also contains lines for other maps including Crystal Scar, Twisted Treeline, Howling Abyss, and Summoner's Rift.

[This video contains VO lines for all maps, Dominion, and spectator mode]

This VO pack is likely related to the upcoming Bilgewater : Burning Tides event later this Summer.

HUD Update - Ally Summoner Spell timers

The HUD Update now tracks ally summoner spell timers on the scoreboard!
Notice in the picture above that Vi and Bard have both used their summoner spells recently and the square is ticking down to show they are on cooldown and when they will be back up.

New Chroma Packs

Today's update also includes a total of four new chroma packs for Bard, Dreadknight Nasus, Grim Reaper Karthus, and Shockblade Zed,

Bard Blossom Chroma Pack

Each of the Bard chroma also has appropriately recolored meeps:

Dreadknight Nasus Plague Chroma Pack 

Grim Reaper Karthus Plague  Chroma Pack

Shockblade Zed Chroma Pack

Tahm Kench Client Lore Entry

The short form client lore entry for Tahm Kench has been added in today's PBE patch:
"The whole world's a river, and I'm its king." 
Tahm Kench travels Runeterra's waterways, feeding his insatiable appetite with the misery of the unsuspecting. The singularly charming gourmand savors every moment of his victims' suffering.  A deal with Two-Coats may carry you to wherever you wish, but your journey will most assuredly end in the depths of despair.


  • Following the other VFX updates earlier this cycle, Nunu's E has been updated to be a bit more snowball-y. [Note: Still looks to be a bit of a WIP as the crystal is sticking through it]

Balance Changes

* Remember *: The PBE is a testing grounds for new, tentative, and sometimes radical changes. The changes you see below may be lacking context or other accompanying changes that didn't make it in - don't freak out! These are not official notes.

  • Righteous Fury (E) New Passive added - Kayle's Basic Attacks deal an additional 10/15/20/25/30 (+.15 AP) magic damage on hit
  • [Note: E's tooltip updated to read active as increasing the damage from the new passive. damage values for E's active are still the same as on live:
"Passive: Kayle's Basic Attacks deal an additional 10/15/20/25/30 (.15 AP) magic damage on hit.  
Active: Kayle increases her Attack Range by 400 for 10 seconds and the passive bonus is increased to 20/30/40/50/60 (+0.25) magic damage on hit.  
In addition, enemies near her target take 20/30/40/50/60 (+20/25/30/35/40% AD) (+0.25 AP) magic damage on attack."]

  • [Tooltip Fix] Mark of the Storm (Passive) tooltip now lists stun duration as1.25 secs from 1
  • [NOTE: Turns out this is just a tooltip change according to Meddler:
"This is just a tooltip fix, turns out Mark of the Storm's duration was increased to 1.25s years ago but that wasn't documented (our bad)."]

  • Unburrow (W) knock up area reduced ~20% - 160 from 200.

  • Base magic resist increased to 32.1 from 30
  • [Note: Singed received magic resist per level in an earlier PBE patch.] 

Enchantment: Devourer
  • Now transforms into "Sated Devourer" and gains extra on hit effects once reaching 30 stacks.
  • Base magic damage on hit increased to 30 from 25
  • Passive Changed to "Devouring Spirit" - Takedowns on Large monsters and champions increase magic damage by +1. Takedowns on epic monsters increased by +5. At 30 stacks, your Devourer becomes Sated, granting extra on Hit effects"
  • Now has a visual of a small purple wolf that follows you while gaining stacks.

[New] Enchantment: Sated Devourer
  • Transforms from  Enchantment: Devourer after obtaining 30 stacks, gaining new effects and a new yellow gem jungler item icon. 
  • Stats:
  • 50% Attack Speed
  • 60 Magic Damage on hit
  • Unique Passive - Phantom Hit: Every other basic attack will trigger a phantom attack that triggers all on hit effects a second time.
  • [Note: Meddler explains Phantom Hit as "This is basically two auto attacks back to back, where the second one has no base damage and therefore only applies on Hit effects."] 
[VFX still WIP - purple clone pops out for the hit]
